The Stiropor Festival, first held in 2014, is a festival of contemporary club music that takes place at various venues in Ljubljana. Its musical coordinates are very broad, presenting techno, grime, beats, experimental electronica, bass, dub step, synth pop and house live acts and DJ sets, coupled with quirky acts like that of the Syrian turbo folk star Omar Souleyman (who was booked in co-production with Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture).

The festival is organised by the Stiropor Collective, who set up the whole event as an extension of their previous work, organising concerts and special events throughout the year

Programme and venues

The first edition of the festival was dispersed throughout 2 weeks and a number Ljubljana venues, taking place at Gala Hala, Creative zone Šiška, Bi-ko-fe, Klub Channel Zero, KUD France Prešeren, Klub Tiffany, and Klub Monokel.

Later, the festival became more condensed in space and time, and is organised at the clubs of Metelkova mesto Autonomous Cultural Zone. Some of the hosted artists were Addison Groove, Jeremy Underground, Kassem Mosse, Dean Blunt, Jessy Lanza, Om Unit, Laszlo Dancehall, Omar Souleyman and Mo Kolours, with the Slovene musicians represented by Jimmy Barka Experience, Your Gay Thoughts, Gregor Zemljič of Random Logic, Christian Kroupa, Žiga Murko, and many others.

The first two editions of the festival were also accompanied by compilations that showcased the works by local musicians invited for the festival. The first one came out on vinyl and the second one on a cassette, alongside which there was also a series of mix tapes.
